The drama never turns off with the cast members of The Real Housewives. Here's what some of them have been up to lately:

Another Marriage Bites the Dust

Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo announced her separation from her husband Tommy Manzo on Twitter over the weekend.

"My secret... I have been separated since October," Dina tweeted. "My heart hurts but Tommy and I will always share a very special love."

Dina and Tommy were married in a lavish ceremony in 2005 that was filmed for VH1's My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding, but Tommy never appeared on RHONJ.

Sober Living

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards says that the sober life has made all the difference in her life.

"It hasn't been easy, but my whole life today is amazing, and I owe it all to my sobriety," Kim told People. "I haven't had a drink since-- it was a year in December. I feel so strong, determined, healthy and happy. I have a great relationship with my children and with both of my sisters."

She's is not only appreciative of the support she gets from her family, but also from her fans, who she, in return, is happy to help and support right back.

"You have no idea how many people out there have said, 'You have saved me. Because of you, I have 30 days of sobriety,'" she said. "I cry. It makes me smile. It makes me cry-smile. I smile-cry. It's so rewarding."

Pay Your Dues

It seems as though Real Housewives of Miami star Alexia Echevarria just can't stay out of the news. It was just last month that she filed a $2 million lawsuit against her insurance broker after accumulating massive medical bills from her son's severe car crash. Now she is on the other side of a suit filed by Fisher Island Club in Miami that claims that she and her husband Herman owe more than $160,000 in unpaid membership fees.

According to TMZ, the couple opted for a $250,000 membership in 2006 and at some point they stopped paying their dues of $18,300 a month. Now the famous Miami club is demanding dues plus interest.

Beyonce Fabulous

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore (who is often mistaken for Beyonce) got a shout-out from Queen Bey herself. When asked by a reporter how she thought the show went with the other former members of Destiny's Child, Beyonce responded that they were "Gone With the Wind Fabulous."I guess Beyonce doesn't mind those Kenya's comparisons to herself as much as Kenya's co-stars do.
